"Adult myoclonic epilepsy: a distinct syndrome of idiopathic generalized epilepsy"
Neurology 2000 Oct 10; 55(7):1030-1033
The authors present 11 cases of idiopathic generalized epilepsy that began in adulthood at a mean age of 39 years. All patients had myoclonic jerks, five had absence seizures, and nine had infrequent generalized tonic-clonic seizures. A majority had a family history of seizures. EEG in all patients showed generalized epileptiform abnormalities, whereas neuroimaging and neurologic examination results were normal. This series appears to represent a previously undescribed idiopathic generalized epilepsy syndrome of adult myoclonic epilepsy
